Over the years, Ugandan socialite Zari Hassan has grown into one of the most successful women in Africa.
It is estimated that her net worth stands at over $ 30 million. The entrepreneur owns properties and businesses in South Africa, Uganda and other countries.
In a recent post on Instagram, Zari revealed that her journey to success and fame started from a very humble place. She even shared throwback pictures.
The mother of 5 shared that after studying cosmetology, she was a house help and even cashier at some point in life.
“Life can be a roller coaster and you will never know where you’ll end up,” she began.
“From studying my cosmetology course in the UK (which hasn’t helped me) while doing house girl work to pay my accommodation (yes I’ve been a maid before)”
”…to running through buses to get my next stop Woodgreen where I worked as a cashier and sometimes as an isle packer in Sainsbury.”
Zari wrote that her hustling experiences made her almost lose hope but she knew that she wanted better in life.
She was born and raised in a humble home and was motivated by her family struggles.
“My dad had left, my mom was doing a tailor’s job day and night and I couldn’t stand seeing her struggle. I couldn’t stand her pain.”
At the time, Zari was living with her aunt in the UK who she said treated her like a step child – not a very pleasant living situation.
“Been through boutiques, long economy flights to China in between building a school and having babies…my music and TV career is a story for another day,” said Zari.
From the entire post, Zari shared that the moral of the story is consistency and perseverance.
“All i’m saying, consistency is key. Doesn’t matter where you are or what you do. Just do it,” she finished.
